  • Care
    Care Information
    Thrives in enriched, slightly acidic, well-drained soil, with sturdy trellis or arbor support. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed in early spring. Trim lightly after flowering to promote repeat bloom. Prune in late winter to shape and control size.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or tree(s).
